I have turned them off now, and got the following:
Before the welcome to fedora..... I had some ACPI errors, it is too much
text to write down and reproduce her, is there some way to log the
startup text to a file or something?

After the welcome i got the following:
(Freely translated from norwegian to english)
Setting hostname localhost		[OK]
Initializing USB controller (ohci-hcd)	[OK]
Mounting USB-filesystem			[OK]


Then the system hang....

Is there also a way to keep the whole starup in English instead of
norwegian?
